Additional Information
The 3-D quality to this necklace gives it a Ruff-like appearance, although for the wearer’s comfort, it doesn’t sit so tightly on your neck as a Ruff does. The lower and upper edges rise up into saw-toothed finishes, the upper edge being shorter than the lower for ease and style. The inner edge is flat and smooth, and the partially concealed area sits on your skin revealing a diamond and triangle pattern evenly punctuated with 3-4 mm Swarovski bicones. This necklace is reversible and looks really good either way.
Students will Learn:
How to make two different elements using peyote stitch with increases; how to amalgamate the elements with crystals to make a necklace; how to combine colors to create different patterns and effects on the same necklace.
